    Default Assistance with Potanthus or Telicota skipper

    Two individuals photographed in the same area at the same time (they do look like the same species to me). From !,600 metres on Doi Pha Hom Pok, northern Thailand. I have spent considerable time comparing to my other images and web searches but an unable to come to any good conclusion as to which species (or even genus) these are. Any help very appreciated please.
